2014: The Year That Was


Helloooooo December 31st. Hello New Year’s Eve. Is it really the last day of 2014 already? I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like this year has absolutely flown by. It is actually a little bit ridiculous how quickly this year has gone. But it sure has been a great year and 2015 is going to be even bigger and better. I can feel it. In fact, to kick off the new year with a bang, tomorrow will be One Active Life’s first birthday!!

Yes, that’s right it’s almost been one whole year since the launch of One Active Life. And what a year it has been.

I want to take this opportunity to whole-heartedly thank every single person – friends, family, readers, followers, visitors, subscribers – for all the support over this past year. To every person who has read a blog, liked a photo, shared a post or just curiously checked out One Active Life, thank you! It really, truly means the world to me and I am so grateful for all the support.

One of the most amazing things is having someone personally thank me for a blog I have written. Over the past year I have had numerous people approach me and thank me for something I have shared. It truly humbles me and gives me such fulfillment to know my words have touched, even just one person. To know that my words and my experiences have resonated with a reader and helped them in some way, is all I need, to feel my purpose is done. It’s not always easy to publicly display some of my deepest insecurities and my ongoing battles. It can be pretty daunting. But when I get positive feedback it really does fill me with such joy and I know it is all worth it.

So with that being said, what better way to celebrate 2014 and 1 year of One Active Life, then by reminiscing back on some of our most popular blog posts from 2014.
